Is the Pursuit of Happiness Valid or Merely Self-Serving? A college professor who attended one of my lectures labeled the pursuit of happiness trivial, self-indulgent and self-serving. I don’t know what his experiences may have been but I have noted that when people are happy, they are much more loving, supportive and available to themselves [...]

Closer To Fine

Posted on July 26th, 2006 in Emotional Angst

I feel like this blog has been terribly superficial as of late. I mean it’s been a lot of “oh we did this and this, and then this happened” and very little of anything substantial. I wonder a little if that is why the comments have trickled down to nearly nothing. Don’t get me wrong, [...]

Posted on July 23rd, 2006 in Are You Gonna Eat That?, Does All Her Own Stunts

Overheard in my kitchen recently: Me: *Whining about something I am sure* Jack: You can’t always get what you want… *pause* Me: *sly grin* Jack: Although, you sure seem to all the time… Yes, yes I do. I have been totally spoiled this week thus far. We had Jack’s birthday, which was a small family [...]

Stampede Is Over For Another Year

Posted on July 17th, 2006 in Does All Her Own Stunts, Made In Alberta

My blogging mojo has been off all weekend. So here’s a brief re-cap of events since my last post. Taking the kids to Stampede on Friday was a TOTAL disaster! I dunno if everyone was just tired and therefore bitchy, but by the time Jack and I were going to take the kids home I [...]

Sod Off

Posted on July 12th, 2006 in This And That

If you are wondering about the lack of bloggy goodness around here this week it’s because Jack and I are laying sod in our yard. By ourselves. My HNT post this week might be of my shiny new sunburn. Or maybe the blisters I have from moving around gargantuan amounts of dirt. Pretty hawt stuff [...]
